The reopening of the three bars and pubs is part of a pilot programme for the nightlife sector.
As part of the move to reopen the nightlife scene in Singapore, three bars and pubs will be allowed to reopen for two months, authorities announced on Tuesday (Dec 8).
The three joints are: Bell Bar at Cuppage Plaza, Skinny’s Lounge at Boat Quay and Bar Kiharu at Orchard Plaza. Bell Bar is reopening on Tuesday evening, Skinny’s Lounge on Wednesday, while Bar Kiharu plans to reopen latest by Thursday.
They were selected by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) and the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), out of six nominations fielded by nightlife business associations in Singapore.
Last month, authorities said that they will allow a “limited number” of nightlife establishments to reopen as pilots with safe management measures (SMMs) in December.
These measures include existing rules, such as restricting groups to a maximum of five people, no intermingling between tables and no alcohols allowed to be served or consumed after 10.30pm.
Music may be played, but it must be no louder than 60 decibels, which is the equivalent of a normal conversation. Live music, radio and television broadcasts, as well as other forms of public entertainment such as dancing, darts, billiards, pool or karaoke are not allowed.
